    Spoke to my mum today on skype. She'd bought a shake weight! This is after I drew her up a complete beginners bodyweight program. I really couldn't believe it, and I might have been a bit harsh. And no, I don't care that a footballers' wife uses the Shake Weight.

    Although by the end of the conversation I convinced her to take it back to the shop and exchange it for a kettlebell

    Did you know it's not the people that are a problem, quite the opposite (more people have meant better resources and standard of living for everyone). The problem is adequate distribution of resources. There is plenty, getting it to the people who need it from those who have it (us fat Americans) IS the problem...

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Can someone explain to me why, when the ocean water is nice and warm (well, warm for the Pacific) and the waves are fairly calm and the shore isn't too rocky...why are all these kids in effing wetsuits? Did someone put out a bulletin about the dangers of swimming un-suited? Is it to protect them from deadly solar radiation? Whyyyyyyy?

    I mean, having to put the damn thing on...take it off...air it out. When I was a kid, kicking around the Orange County coast, I never had a wetsuit. Never! We just went in. It was cold...then you got used to it. So sad.

    I have to say, I'm 47 now and grew up in Orange County. I never did understand why they called the Pacific Ocean "warm", but I did get used to it once I was in it for 20 minutes or so. As an adult? It's just too damn cold. But I live in the desert now, and it's blazing hot 6 months out of the year, so maybe I've just become aclimated to here instead.

    Cold thermogenesis at its funnest!

    And it's really not that bad. Once you hit mid-May, the water's fine. There's an initial involuntary clench when that first wave hits you, but if you just keep with it, you will be rewarded.

    First off, I should say that as a native californian who has lived in both norcal and socal, I know exactly what youre talking about when it comes to what passes for beach weather and conditions here (actual conversations with people from out of state visiting norcal:

    "We should go to the beach!"
    "Ew, why, its the middle of June!"
    "Right!"
    "...Yeah no."
    "What, why?"
    "Cause itll be windy as hell and we have to bring like three sweatshirts."
    "What?"
    "What?")

    And I think the issue that you have to remember is that kids have a much higher surface-area-to-volume ratio than adults do. This means that they will lose heat into the water a lot faster than we will, and might get their core body temperature down to dangerously low levels while we're still feeling "kinda chilly." Also the wetsuit, being thick and dark, will help them absorb heat from the sun a lot faster than bare skin (especially if theyre white) So I dont see a problem with kids in wetsuits. They can get some bare skin sun exposure when theyre done in the water and take the suits off to play in the sand.
